Hi all,

I purchased 3 White Rock pullets today, they are probably about a week old. I already have two 5-6 week old Welsummers, one hen and one rooster. Of course the white rocks are in a separate brooder and will be until they get to be bigger, but I'm curious about how to integrate the two groups of birds. What is the best way to integrate them?

I always have luck when they are housed NEXT to each other, so they can SEE each other and interact !! Then after a few weeks I put them all in the same area , with LOTS of room to run around , usually outside !!
